"Boiling Down Silas" on The White Wall Sessions

Northern Spirit Radio interview

"Charlie Parr is a singer/songwriter dynamo, touring constantly & widely, sharing his down-home music of the American country blues genres. For a person who battles constantly with depression, his music is powerfully enlivening, played on either his 12-string or resonator guitars, or sometimes on his banjo. A life-long Minnesotan, Duluth is his occasional refuge from the road."

He released his album Dog, back in September and gave candid interviews about how his struggle with depression influenced the making of the record. He's currently doing a January residency Wednesdays at the Cedar Lounge in Superior and will take the stage the same night at 8."

Goldmine interview

"I got an organic sounding record. I got the actual thing these songs are about which is what they are about plus what music is for me. It’s not finished with the solitary part of writing the song. It’s never done then. The song is never really finished being written until it’s been performed in front of other people or brought to their attention. So this feels like a very community like effort for me to make music."
